On this page I'll try to "guide" you through
the massive amount of information on video.
The guide starts at the point of retrieving video
and getting it onto your PC, up on to the point where you wish
to store it on a CD or DVD.
In each section you will find links to the appropriate
pages on the WeetHet.nl website.
As you can see, there is still room for some additional articles
Tip: to "rip"
the video file from a VideoCD,
look for the AVSEQ.DAT (might have additional
numbers in the name) file on the VCD (MPEGAV folder).
Simply copy the file to your harddisk and rename
the .DAT file to a .MPG file, which results in an MPEG-1 file. The
same trick works for Super VideoCD,
although the filename might be different. Look in the MPEG2 or
the MPEGAV folder. After renaming the file, you
will have a nice MPEG-2 file.
Tip: AVI is basically a "shell" around a movie.
The format of the actual video and audio data can differ and depend
on the so called codecs use. Some DivX files have the extension
AVI, some have DivX other again use XviD, etc. XviD is a DivX variant.
See the Video Formats
page for more details.
